National HSI Week at UCSC

This year UCSC celebrates National HSIs Week from September 12 - 18, 2022.

National HSI Week is identified by the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) as an opportunity to celebrate and build awareness of the work and the important role HSIs play in improving access to education and advancing equity practices for underserved students. Colleges and universities across the nation observe national HSI Week. Our institution is hosting a social media campaign and a series of welcome events for new students, faculty, and staff to familiarize themselves with the HSI work done at UC Santa Cruz.

We invite you to read this letter from our directors as we ready for HSI week and prepare to begin a new academic year.

Please follow us on Instagram (@ucsc.hsi) to keep up to date with our events and awareness campaign. We are excited to partner with the Chicanx/Latinx Resource Center "El Centro" to bring these events to you!
